Before "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" Hits Theaters, the Fourth Twilight Installment, "Breaking Dawn" Gets Green Light

Posted on Thursday, October 15th, 2009 2:30 PM by Scott Jentsch

Book CoverWith more than a month to go before The Twilight Saga: New Moon gets to movie theaters, the movie based on the fourth book in the series is already being planned. A press release issued Monday states that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has been given the go-ahead by Summit Entertainment.

The movie is expected to begin shooting next September and a 2011 release is being planned. The possibility of a two-parter is being discussed. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is hitting theaters in June 2010.

The first Twilight movie was a surprise hit last year, and anticipation for New Moon has been building ever since. Advance tickets have been selling at a break-neck pace for opening day and the midnight shows the night before, so if you're interested in going on opening weekend, be sure to buy your tickets in advance!

For more information, see the full press release below.

Press Release

It's Official! 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' Gets The Green Light!

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" production has been greenlit by Summit Entertainment and publisher Alan Baltes has the latest information.

BURBANK, Calif., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The fourth saga in the Twilight Series is going back to it's roots and will be filmed in Portland, Oregon. The original Twilight film was shot there. In addition, a new production company, Sunswept Entertainment, has been brought on board for Breaking Dawn. Sunswept Entertainment was created by Karen Rosenfelt, who is the daughter of former MGM Chairman & CEO Frank Edward Rosenfelt. Karen Rosenfelt served as Producer on both "Twilight" and on "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse". She did not work on "New Moon", but is producing "Breaking Dawn" through her Sunswept Entertainment banner.

There will likely be quite a bit of tweaking to the fourth novel in the series due to the explicit sex and birth scenes to avoid an R rating. Inside sources confirm that Breaking Dawn may be filmed and released in two parts - "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I", and "Part II". Although this has not been confirmed officially by Summit, author Stephenie Meyer has stated, "It would have to be made into multiple movies because it's hard to imagine it fitting into ninety minutes".

Fans can expect a massive talent search for the role of Renesmee Cullen, the half-vampire, half-human daughter of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, just as there was for the roles of Seth and Leah Clearwater in "Eclipse".

David Slade is directing "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse", but it is unknown if he will also direct any of the Breaking Dawn films. "Breaking Dawn: Part I" should start shooting in September 2010, with a release scheduled for 2011.
